     Hi guys I am looking to buy my first projector and there is a lot of tech to chose from. I wanted to see if you guys can help me decide some things.  First confusing thing would be DLP vs LCD. I went threw a similar debate back in college when i bought my plasma vs the LCD's back then. From...

    So I am doing what little testing at stores I can do and reading lots of forums about projectors. I am replacing my Sony VPL-VW100 and use a 106" High Power screen in a light controlled basement home theater. I like the Epson 6010 that I was able to see in person. Although the picture didn't...

    Hello, About a year ago I bougth a NOS Ruby from my local Sony dealer. It was factory sealed and the price was good, so I took it. It has now 400 hours and it developed the cricket lamp sound. So far I've tried no thermal paste, two diferent brand thermal pastes and now Wurth anti-seize...

    Long story short, bought the projector off of Craigslist with the "bulb clicking issue". Fixed that by swapping a capacitor (might make a post on that later....if asked). The problem I have now is that all the fans in the projector seem to be running on full power (really loud and annoying) ...

    I have recently sent my bulb to have the lamp replaced. I was wondering how I can tell if they put a new lamp In?

    I need some advice. I have a six year old Sony VPL VW 100. I am on my second lamp and that needs to be replaced. The projector took a lightning strike and that wiped out the HDMI inputs so I can only get component video to the projector (though that works fine). Repairing the HDMI inputs is...

    I recently started having issues where the unit (or lamp) will not turn on. The unit won't fire up and just "clicks". Eventually the lamp/cover light stays light (solid) and per the manual it stated that the lamp was needing to be replaced. It was far from the 2000 hr lifespan but figured that...

    Sony VPL-VW100 Hard Start Mod Kit Assy. This seems to have been a common problem, prompting Sony to produce and offer the infamous Hard Start Mod Kit Assy for the earlier model VPL-VW100. Unfortunately after recently purchasing a VPL-VW100 from a private party (which by the way had very low...

    I am putting my existing Sony VPL-VW100 projector back up in a new house. It needs a new bulb because it has quite a few hours on it. Should I pay $859.00, plus shipping, to buy a new bulb or look at a new projector? I assume I cannot put a Sony VPL-VW200 Bulb in my Sony VPL-VW100 to get the...

    This weekend while watching my Ruby it died on me. I have just under 300 hrs on it. Without going into boring details, when I first got the unit I sent it back twice for repairts. Now it appears I will need to send it back a THIRD time. It appears to be the same issue I had about 5 months ago...

    As most of you know the Bulb for the Ruby (Sony VPL-VW100) is a "Cermax" style/brand xenon bulb. (Sony LMP-H400) Here is a supposed picture of the bulb itself Here is one in the housing/heatsink Although the going rate for Bulb with new housing in the US seams to be about $850 you...

    Looks like we needed a good, centralized thread to share helpful tips, tricks, and settings related to calibrating the Ruby. I'll start by posting some of my findings and some questions. [Mods - please leave this thread in this forum rather than moving it to the calibration forum - as most...
